Ready, Set, Supply!

Ready, Set, Supply is a school supplies drive to stock the classrooms of Hamilton County. Over the summer we are challenging our community to support our students and teachers so they can focus on their learning and the year ahead!

How you can help

You can support the 400 new teachers and 2,700 returning teachers in Hamilton County in 2024-2025. Research shows having the proper supplies helps kids stay in school, promotes learning, and builds self-esteem. There are two main ways you can help that will take very little of your time!

Donate Supplies

See wishlists and easily order supplies!

Donations of gently used supplies are also encouraged! All items can be shipped to 4302 Bonny Oaks Drive Chattanooga, TN 37416. If you have items you’d like to drop off, reach out and make an appointment today!


Spread the Word!
